    “My professors actually heard my ideas, and people in my class really paid attention to what I said. I realized that in high school, I’d had a lot of anxiety and I wondered why they kept the heat on all year long. I started to ease and relax at McDaniel — and then realized that was just a scared, anxious response. The heat hadn’t been on at all.”

    "If we can’t get lawmakers to enact public policy that incentivizes the right things, we can act on our own as consumers. Every single human can be an active participant in changing our food systems just by voting with their fork every day.”

    “My professors played an enormous, fundamental role in developing my interests. I remember receiving graded papers that were full of comments, going into office hours to discuss what research method to use, and having lunch or coffee and talking about a conference or just general questions I had about what to do after college.”
